    Subject[PATCH v5 mips-next 0/9] MIPS: sections fixes & cleanup
    This series hunts the problems discovered after manual enabling of
    - adds the missing PAGE_ALIGNED_DATA() section affecting VDSO
    placement (marked for stable);
    - stops blind catching of orphan text sections with .text.*
    - properly stops .eh_frame section generation.

    Compile and runtime tested on MIPS32R2 CPS board with no issues
    using two different toolkits:
    - Binutils 2.35.1, GCC 10.2.1 (with Alpine patches);
    - LLVM stack: 11.0.0 and from latest Git snapshot.

    Since v4 [3]:
    - new: drop redundant .text.cps-vec creation and blind inclusion
    of orphan text sections via .text.* directive in;
    - don't assert SIZEOF(.rel.dyn) as it's reported that it may be not
    empty on certain machines and compilers (Thomas);
    - align GOT table like it's done for ARM64;
    - new: catch UBSAN's "unnamed data" sections in generic definitions
    when building with LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION;
    - collect Reviewed-bys (Kees, Nathan).

    Since v3 [2]:
    - fix the third patch as GNU stack emits .rel.dyn into VDSO for
    some reason if .cfi_sections is specified.

    Since v2 [1]:
    - stop discarding .eh_frame and just prevent it from generating
    - drop redundant sections assertions (Fangrui);
    - place GOT table in .text instead of asserting as it's not empty
    when building with LLVM (Nathan);
    - catch compound literals in generic definitions when building with
    - collect two Reviewed-bys (Kees).

    Since v1 [0]:
    - catch .got entries too as LLD may produce it (Nathan);
    - check for unwanted sections to be zero-sized instead of
    discarding (Fangrui).


    Alexander Lobakin (9):
    MIPS: add missing PAGE_ALIGNED_DATA() section
    MIPS: CPS: don't create redundant .text.cps-vec section
    MIPS: add ".gnu.attributes" to DISCARDS
    MIPS: properly stop .eh_frame generation
    MIPS: explicitly catch .rel.dyn symbols
    MIPS: explicitly declare .got table catch compound literals into data and BSS catch UBSAN's "unnamed data" into data
